A bit about us

AO has always had very big ideas. Even as the underdog in the early 2000’s our competitors could see how different we were. We wanted to disrupt the online retail market and redefine the customer journey. Starting as an appliance retailer we now offers TV’s, Small domestic appliances, Laptops and more.

Our customers are our biggest advocates, and we are proud to say we make millions of them happy. Our Trust Pilot score is 9.5 / 10 but we’re still determined to be the best electrical retailer in Europe.

For that, you need to be driven. You need to be bold enough to try new things, and smart enough to see them through. You need to care about people and each other, and you should always have a little fun as you do it.

Here’s what you can expect to be doing

  • We care about the purchases our customer’s make and want to protect their interests. This means calling them after their online order and offering them our value added service.
  • Our customers are people and we want you to build a lasting impression on them that is positive – Truly understanding their needs and building relationships is a crucial part of the role
  • The customer always comes first – Our approach is consultative and not pushy. Our sales executives are able to sell to customers using proven techniques and belief in the product.
  • Everything is a team effort – You will be part of a wider team in Manchester and this means getting involved, caring about your team mates and working together closely.

A few things about you

  • Working in a high activity, outbound sales role is nothing new for you – It’s something you have done recently and know you are good at it.
  • You hone your skills and clearly understand the full sales cycle and can explain your approach and techniques with confidence.
  • You prefer to work in a sales role where integrity and a consultative approach are encouraged
  • You know exactly what you want to earn and why
  • You learn from your failures and turn them in to success. You stay positive in the face of adversity

For Cheeky Recruiters...

The in-house team at AO has a highly trained set of recruiters who know the precise type of person that would flourish in the business, as such we won't consider / read speculative or unsolicited CVs from agencies to any AO employee.

When we need to draw upon our external recruitment partners we will only use suppliers who have signed up to our preferred supplier list. Only our selected recruitment partners will earn a fee where we have instructed them directly within a specific remit.

If the above is not observed the AO team reserves the right to contact submitted candidates directly and initiate discussions without payment of any agency fee.

If you chance your arm and submit unsolicited CVs and proposals to AO, all of the above will apply. We really don't think there is any point.
